    Limas Sweed says No Need For Plaxico, Im The Tall Receiver

    Sweed: ‘I’m the tall receiver this team needs’
    With the Steelers losing out on Free Agent WR Plaxico Burress and the talk of the Steelers needing a big receiver, Limas Sweed has something to say.
    “I am that guy,” said Sweed, a 6-foot-4, 220-pounder who is entering his fourth season with the club. “That’s how I like to look at it. It’s just a matter of me showing my teammates and my coaches that I am that guy.”
    Sweed did not play in 2010 after injuring the Achilles tendon in his left leg. In addition to the injury, Sweed had been dealing with some emotional issues for much of the past two years. He was placed on the Reserve/Non-Football Illness List late in the 2009 season.
    Sweed, a second-round selection in the 2008 draft, has to make an impact during camp to earn a roster spot. The Steelers have four established receivers in Hines Ward, Mike Wallace, Emmanuel Sanders and Antonio Brown. Sweed will be in a battle with a slew of other receivers for a roster spot.
    “I just come in like I’m a rookie,” Sweed said. “I’m coming off an injury. I battled some off-the-field issues the past couple of years, which held me back. I’m grateful the Steelers were there to work with me and get me through that. I’m back in my right mind mentally and physically. Now it’s time to just go play, let the chips fall where they may.”

    Yes Lima Beans Sweed. Catch the damn ball and stay healthy. Or stay healthy so you can practice on catching then holding onto the ball.
